Hi, I thought I'd share this little "achievement"-based variant of Ice Cool.
I'm a sucker for achievement play. Give me goals on my way to winning and it just makes me happy.

My family can't get enough of flicking penguins in the head, and my young son inspired the ideas for the Ice Cool "olympics". He wanted to keep the gameplay focused on cool tricks, so we came up with two pentathlons, so to speak, of different "events" that use the scoring cards and fish meeples (feeples?) included in the game.

So, I went to town in Microsoft Word and printed our rules out all nice and prettylike.

We play-tested them and with 3 players each pentathlon took about 10-15 minutes, so great for some quick fun. Hilarity ensued and we all agreed it was a good way to keep the play fresh.

Check 'em out. What do ya think?

Amazing! Would it be possible to share the source files for printout?

I think that a game that advertises cool trickshots should be exactly about that. Chasing is mildly amusing but it gets boring after a while. This, however!

Sure, I'll see what I can do. This week is bad, but I'll try to find some time next week to do that. Thanks for the feedback!

Heya Monica - did you ever get around to uploading the files please? Not sure if I missed that memo.

Thanks again either way.

It's probably because it's the same content but you've splitted it into two files and two file upload submits - no wonder admins raised a red light. Upload it as one file (ideally PDF), even if it has these PNG included. If you want, I can assist you with that and create that PDF for you.
